Consumer products are assessed for the hazards that they may pose during foreseeable use. In general, the hazards are from short-term exposure but there are also some long-term exposure hazards. While some hazards are easily identified by the use of hazard symbols and bilingual precautionary warnings printed on a label, other hazards are less obvious, such as children's jewellery containing lead. Other products that are assessed for chemical hazards include, but are not limited to, kettles, glazed ceramics and glassware, and ozone generators.
